NMS is officially being investigated for false advertising in the UK.
The UKís Advertising Standards Authority is investigating No Manís Sky. An RPS source filed complaints to the ASA regarding the trailers and screenshots used to sell No Manís Sky on Steam, arguing that they are unrepresentative of the product being sold. That source Ė and the ASA have confirmed to us Ė that the regulator agrees and has contacted both Valve and No Manís Sky developers Hello Games for their response.
Seems this could have some fairly far-reaching influence on the industry as a whole.
Yeah, that's my fear, as I've mentioned. It's a bit of a witch hunt (or at least a mob mentality with virtual pitchforks).
OTOH, this is really only targeted at advertising, and the result would be that said advertising would be pulled. At least that's how I was made to understand it.
